I won't bore you with a financial lesson, but what Wall Street billionaires know can help you create the life of your dreams: You cannot grow if you do not take risk. In fact, not taking ANY risk is the greatest risk of all! In this show I talk about how I am transitioning out of a successful freelance writing business into an information product model. It is scary as hell. But you know what is even more scary? Sticking to what I know. Why? A) The market for freelance writing is in the toilet. Not branching out is pretty much guranteed recipe for poverty. B) If I don't take a risk and develop my ideas, I will regret that forever. That is the scariest of all: A life of regret.
So take that risk. Take a measured risk. A small one. See how it feels. Maybe it didn't work out as you'd hoped. Maybe it worked out better! Either case, do it again. And again. Make measured risk a part of your everyday life.
In this episode I help:
